Harold was born on September 2, 1932, on the 10th concession of Blanshard Township. Harold lived his entire life in Blanshard Township. He was a proud farmer and many an acre of soil was tilled by Harold over the years. Harold was a lover of the good ole’ time music and would be simply delighted to get out the accordion to play sitting outside with Verna, the birds, or when he played music with his friends. When Harold and Verna moved off the farm to their new home, they enjoyed their flower gardens. Harold’s flowers often got more fertilizer than the required amount. Harold would not pass up an opportunity to give tours of the gardens with family and friends.
